When you are staying at the Casa Verde, then dont miss a visit at the Oro Verde Wildlife Refuge just across the river. It is located on 150 hectares of land, which is mostly primary rainforest. The ride to the refuge alone is a real adventure. They also offer horseback and various wildlife watching tours!
I first came to Costa Rica in 1998. I fell in love with the country right away for so many reasons. I have been coming, living and unfortunately never staying off and on since.
